    Denison gateway 100 - price gone upto Ł139.99 ??? Is this right?

    Guys,

    I was checking these out months back and I swear they were Ł90 (even through Halfords), checking on line now as I want to purchase and they seem to be Ł139.99 - is this right?

    Anyone know of the cheapest place to source them from or should I but on line at Ł139.99 ????

    I have the six disc in dash cd - is that the symthony 11 ??



    Really looking forward to getting the i-pod working !!

    Thanks for anticipated help !

    Cheers

    Check out eBay, there is a store in East London that are selling their stock on there, although it just says Audi IPOD interface, and when you read the description, it will tell you what model it is.

    i paid approx Ł110 from ipoddirect late last year.... they have reconfigured them so you arent just limited to the first few playlists.... although in hindsight i would rather have the parrot device which gives you a colour screen to search for songs and a nice hidden ipod....

    infact if you want to make me an offer.... i would consider as i could sell my current parrot bluetooth and buy the one i really want

    Bought the 'Audi i-pod' connector off E-Bay for Ł59 incl delivery - it seems to do exactly what the DENSION does (FF/REW, access to playlists) and is connected in the same way via the autochanger output so can be hidden in the glovebox.

    Seems plain daft that DENSION has gone upto Ł139.99....

    (Famous last words as just ordered and therefore not recvd/tested !!)

    nice one GT...... hope it works as stated mate, wish id tested some others now as the Dension isnt brilliant, your effectively working blind and based on your knowledge of the first track of each playlist....

    Yes we will see 1animal1, from what i can see it's the same functionality as DENSION...

    Perplexer - i think the 300 has additional features, not sure what mind !

    I think we are going to see a lot of things shoot up in price like this. Importers have been holding prices despite the Ł plummeting last autumn whilst they had stock they'd bought last year. Now stock is costing 20% more to buy in it follows that things are going to jump up in price - and that goes for everything that is imported.

    A mate runs an outdoor shop and the clothing for next winter which they ordered at the turn of the year is going to be a lot more expensive than the equivalent last year.

    Back on topic!

    I had a Dension which had a current drain fault on it - so ended up with a Ł60 Connects2 unit off eBay which works just as well for half the price.

    Ive got the unit through and attached the main block but there is a lone black wire, instructions are complete rubbish (no written what so ever), any one used these - anyone suggest/know what i need to do with the black wire - im guessing it would be blue if it were a power on type so must be additional earth that i attached to a screw on the back of head unit ??? anyway not working at moment so i guess i need to do something with the wire????

    Ive pm'd the seller off ebay but id like to get it done today without putting the unit back into the dash properly - hassle to get the thing out in the first place !!!


    Help lads !

    Just replied to your pm - as you suspected, it's an earth wire. Connect it to the earth on the back of the radio.
